to throw some fuel into the fire here. for an already tense session at the united nations, the general assembly is trying to deal with the palestinian authority's intention of putting in a request for u.n. membership. that would essentially force the world to recognize palestinian statehood without any direct negotiations between the palestinian authority and israel and it's a very dangerous slope as far as president obama is concerned. he spent his time at the podium urging the palestinian authority not to do that. but at this point, there's no indication that they are not going to go forward. the u.s., of course, has that option of vetoing the request outright. it would put an end to it. there's concern that the u.s. does that, there could be a backlash of violence in the middle east so a very precarious situation today. and mahmoud ahmadinejad's arrival here at the u.n. to speak is not putting anyone at ease. that's the latest from here at the u.n. let's take it back to you guys. >> all right, thank you very much for the live report from the east side of manhattan. >> now to the oth

now at united nations, a security council is about to consider the palestinian's bid for state hood. as we've mentioned, this is clearly a huge deal. abbas made his push last week before the u.n. general assembly. here's the thing. the u.s. has already said it will veto the move. president obama says the next step forward cannot come through a solution at u.n. he says the answer is diplomacy, specifically renewed talks on the tough issues that still divide the palestinians and israelis. many palestinians acknowledge this whole bid is largely symbolic. president abbas is still making and receiving praise for it as well. he got a hero's welcome when he returned home to the west bank just yesterday. take a look at the crowd there waving the flags all in support of him and his move. we're going to keep watching this one for you and bring you any developments from the u.n. as soon as we get them. >>> then the one gop candidate for president takes the lead in a new straw poll. >> i feel great. i feel even greater because the voice of the people is bigger than the voice of the media. >> he
